of the big clouds of july, that the presidential elections here in the u.s. has been lifted. and i think the u.s. will come with a very constructive position, having had time now, as requested, to study the document and make proposals to strengthen it. the challenge will be we're having a negotiation between 193 states who have raised different interests with regards to the arms trade and i think trying to find compromises that still produce a strong treaty will be where the challenge will be. it could be possible, there could be an agreement but could be a question of will that treaty make a difference? that will be a crucial element to discuss and consider during these two weeks. >> what about ongoing conflicts like the war in syria, for instance, whether or not the rebels should be armed? how do these conflicts play into those talks in new york? >> i think that's going to be a very interesting question. in the past a lot of civil society campaigners have pointed out the role played by russia, china and iran because they're supplying the government force there is and hoping the arms tr

of social issues. the gop has struggled to define itself since the loss in the 2012 presidential election. joining me to help me understand this from washington al lent from boomberg view and mark halperin from "time" magazine. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. i begin with this al. as you know i've been in rome watching the new pope be selected. so i've been there getting religion and i've sort of lost sight what's going on in washington. give me an update of what i have missed. >> there's no white smoke coming out of the rnc building yet charlie i will tell you that. >> rose: what about the whitehouse. >> or the whitehouse. there's a great deal of ferment going on in the republican party right now which i think by and large is healthy. there's a couple caveats now but the previous report on immigration i think a lot of things are happening. rand paul today came out for at least legal status for immigrants. so i think some people thought after this last election debalk backal will be pointing fingers and there's a lot of that going on. some of this stuff i think is
if the elected officials who rule the world. things could make a difference. it brings me to the proposal in which my argument issue. the proposal that in order give voice and a largeness of life and political act to what cities are already doing. what inner city organizations are doing. we need to convene something like a global assembly of city. a global parliament of payors. and in order to do that, are so you joining me, sir, or coming up to take those away? thank you. we need a global mayors pal -- parliament. not a top down executive telling cities what to do. but a representative organization that allows cities to consult, to opt in and out, and to do together what they are already doing informally. and let me just conclude by -- if you don't mind. i don't like to read. i'm going read the last few pages here of the chapter about global parliament. i want to be con skies and make clear what it's about. isn't that grandiose. isn't that kind of utopian. what i want to suggest is this when i propose a mayor's parliament, i'm not asking for a mandate for top down sovereignty by mega cit
that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the election just a few months ago. it takes the kind of truly balanced approach that families across our country strongly support, and i believe it is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. now, i spoke at length last night about our budget. it's built on three principles. number one, we have got to protect our fragile economic recovery, create jobs and invest in our long-term growth. this is something that every family in america is asking us to focus on. number two, we need to tackle our deficit and debt fairly and responsibly. as democrats, we understand that is a responsibility that we bear today and we do it in this budget. and number three, we need to keep the promises we made as a nation to our seniors and our families and our communities. many who have struggled so much over the last few years and are counting on us to be there for them again now. mr. president, we'll be hearing a lot more about all these principles today and we're going to discuss
. >> if these experts who keep losing elections, you keep getting rehired raking in millions, if they feel that strongly about who gets to run in this party, then they should buck up or stay in the truck. buck up and run. the architects can head on back to -- they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> oh, that did not go over too well with karl rove, the man known as the architect of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large nu
different direction than the national democrats want to and winning elections with that approach. so there's a lot to be learned both by the failure of the romney campaign and the senate races and the successes the republicans have had at the state level. >> host: and we're taking your calls in this segment with grover norquist with americans for tax reform. the phone lines are open. democrats, 202-585-3880. republicans, 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. grover norquist known as an expert on some of these budget issues. you bring up the senate budget that we saw from budget chairwoman patty murray last week with. talk about that and how you think it compares to paul ryan's budget. >> guest: there are two major differences. they certainly go in different directions. the paul ryan budget balances in ten years and does not raise taxes. patty murray's budget never balances and raises taxes $1.5 trillion over the next decade. so what the democrats and patty murray are saying in addition to the $600 billion tax increase that obama won in january and the trillion dollars of obamacare tax
into the ballot box as a politician. there's a general election coming up here in pakistan. the first time potentially that one democratic government would hand over to another democratic government, believe it or not, for the first time in country's history. he believes that he's going to be a key player. but given the muted response he's had to his landing here so far and very little media coverage, it would seem that they have an uphill battle to make that race to the front so to speak here in the election coming up here. he -- as we said, he was unchallenged in the past, but now he wants to try and challenge all the big boys in pakistan's politics. well, it remains to be seen if he can manage that. >> well, that's the thing. he comes back and says he's coming back to in his words save the country. and yet he hasn't got a seat. he hasn't got much of a chance of getting 170 seats in the election one would imagine. meanwhile, what are the charges he's facing? and then as we said he's a guy that the taliban wants to take out. >> yes. absolutely. a couple of reality checks there aren't ther
election of my life last fall. i had tracking cameras around me from st. patrick's day until november 6th, one to three cameras always focused on me trying to get a second or a minute that they could run against me in an ad. they didn't get a single second that they could run against me, not one second, by the way. [applause] but they're in the business of trying to undermine and weaken us, and i didn't back up on any principle. we debated the issue of life, and i said my opponent, my leftist opponent cannot answer two questions on life. is human life sacred in all of its forms? yes, it is. and at what moment does life begin? the instant of conception. and the people on the other side of this question dare not answer either one of those questions. they know they lose the debate. i stood on life, and i stood on marriage -- [applause] and the thing that a bunch of people that have been backing away from these challenges don't seem to realize that i'm still standing. [applause] now, why is that? i didn't run a campaign on jobs and the economy, jobbing and the economy, jobs and the economy an
for the task. a general election is scheduled for may 11th. >>> art fair tokyo 2013 is under way featuring antiques and contemporary works offered by about 140 galleries both inside and outside japan. the annual event opened on thursday at the tokyo international forum. the fair is the largest of its kind in japan and attracts more than 50,000 visitors. its organizers say this year the weaker yen may attract more art collectors from overseas. >> translator: the yen is weaker and tokyo stock prices are higher. they indicate the country is getting a shot in the arm. >> translator: the weaker yen is good news for overseas buyers. japan has a lot of good art items, so i think the country's market will grow. >> 24 young japanese artists living together are selling their building and works of art as a package for about $2.6 million. >> translator: a number of visitors from abroad are coming to see this art fair. as an organizer, this trend is definitely giving us a leg up. >> the organizer says japanese contemporary art has been popular among overseas collectors for years and recently its invest
have a pretty good chance? >> she has a so-so chance. the primary election within her party was sunday. so that's over with. but what she's doing right now is her own party to get reinstated on the ballot. she says she was discriminated against, a victim of slander. and there's no proof she did what is alleged, she should be allowed to run. >> that's the right point. none of this has been proven, how does she get banned? on what ground? >> the mexican system is not banning her. what happened is her own party after learning of these allegations, this is the p.a.n., most conservative party in mexico, the party itself said because of the allegations we would not like you to run and essentially stopped her from running and took her name off the ballot. but again the general election is in july and she still has a chance if the court system, the judicial system in mexico moves fast enough. >> so she's saying -- or they're saying she would simply be a distraction and maybe she needs to think about backing it up. >> i had an opportunity to speak with her. and what she was telling me is, liste
the last election. when i listen to leaders, they're talking about what matters most. talking about the fact that the free enterprise system is not a system to make you until warrior to help hedge fund managers and private equity companies but to help the powers to the powerless, to give a fair break. that is the kind of language they're using. we don't necessarily need a new visionary. will we need is people with real experience talking about it in a way it is aspirational and truth. stuart: well said. a pleasure having you with us. come again please i want to bring money into this because you know what's going, the obamacare. the think it is just pure wishful thinking on my part that all system is unraveling? >> i hope you're right. the problem is, when obama talked about the fundamental transformation of the nation this is what he meant. he went after the four main pillars of the u.s. economy, industrial base, financial sector, energy sector, and health care. once you remake those parts of the economy into a socialist model, it's very tough to unravel. very tough to unwrap the te
is that, it depends on you are going obamacare, as you say. the american people spoke in the election that they did not want that repealed, but you continue to do that. i think it is dishonest. i heard you earlier when you stated that you are not even a part of that. you guys did not want to participate in forming that deal. what is sad about it, it is part of something you republicans wanted to do years ago. i feel that you guys, both sides, are fighting the american people. it is unfortunate, because we're the ones that sent you guys there, and you act like you are not working for the people and your job is to work for the people. .uest: i cannot agree more thanks. the president's health care law, and i rarely call it obamacare. the president calls it obamacare, i do not. i call it the president's health care law or the aca. please hear me, this law, the current law will harm, i believe as a physician, will harm the ability of your dr. to take care of you. that does not make any sense to me. it is important, when we believe that is the case, we would be irresponsible if we do not pr
